Fancy Colored Diamonds 101

Clean Origin offers a variety of fancy colored diamonds.

How rare are natural fancy colored diamonds? Extremely rare! Fancy colored diamonds are priced based on their hues and fancy color saturation. A fancy color diamond appears when trace elements interact with the carbon atoms of a forming colorless diamond as it encounters an impurity. If you're looking for a colored diamond, your options include fancy yellow diamonds, blue diamonds, pink diamonds, green diamonds, purple diamonds, brown diamonds, black diamonds, red diamonds, and many more. From light to dark diamonds, the options are limitless.

Diamond color varies based on chemistry. For example, a canary yellow diamond gets its color from nitrogen. When there's enough nitrogen in the stone, it becomes one of the fancy yellow diamonds we know and love. A similar process happens with blue diamonds. For this type of diamond, boron atoms have to enter colorless diamonds. Boron doesn't often interact with diamond crystal structure, which is why blue diamonds are so rare. This is also why blue natural diamonds, even with faint blue hues, sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Though a treated diamond is much less expensive than a natural diamond, a treated color diamond is often far too expensive for the average buyer.

Lab-Grown Colored Diamonds

Many colored diamonds are lab grown to give you perfect color saturation shades at a fraction of the cost of a natural color diamond. Lab grown fancy colored diamonds have the exact same properties as treated or natural colored diamonds. Also, the color appears much stronger in a lab grown fancy colored diamond than in a mined colored diamond. This is because scientists have more control over the diamond's color and crystal structure in a lab. They can manipulate the different hues of its dominant color and secondary color, which combine to create the true color of a fancy intense diamond or fancy color diamond.

Lab grown white diamonds are also more affordable than natural diamonds. As an added bonus, Clean Origin's lab grown diamonds are 100% ethically sourced. If you have your heart set on a yellow diamond engagement ring or dream of a pink diamond, this might be your sign to shop lab grown for your dream ring!

Tips For Purchasing Colored Diamonds

The 4Cs apply to colored diamonds just as they are applied to a colorless diamond, with a few differences.


It's important to look for brilliant cuts that allow light to reflect beautifully. The cut of a diamond determines how well light reflects through and out of a diamond. In regards to colored diamonds, the cut is not the most important element, as colored diamonds are cut to have the color shine through.


The color grade of a diamond is rated from D to Z. D graded diamonds are nearly colorless, on the other hand, a Z graded diamond has visible pale hues shining through. While near colorless diamonds tend to decrease in value when their yellow hues are visible, the opposite occurs for colored diamonds.


The clarity of a diamond refers to the number of inclusions. Inclusions refer to imperfections that are found within. diamond. Generally, inclusions are nearly invisible to the naked eye and would have to be magnetized 10x in order to see any imperfections. Diamonds with fewer imperfections are graded higher on the GIA scale. The great thing about fancy colored diamonds is that their colors hide imperfections, allowing you to get a diamond filled with brilliance at a lower clarity grade, saving you money.

Carat Weight

Carat weight refers to the weight of a diamond. As the carat weight rises, so will the price. Larger diamonds tend to be rarer than smaller ones, making larger diamonds more expensive. When shopping for colored diamonds, keep the carat weight in mind as it influences the final cost.
